Halloween 2013

The Halloween party at Ryedale Folk Museum was fantastic. Activities included apple bobbing, crafts, and a pumpkin competition. There were witches and vampires present in large quantities, and also lovely hot-dogs and soup served by the Simms family. Sausages supplied by Beadlam Grange Farm Shop (they are delicious by the way).Buy them here:
Above all the best bit of the night was a great act by a few vampires which included leaping out of coffins, a ghostly dance display and spooky story telling. They did a great rendition of 'Three Little Pigs'.

There was a good crowd present and the event was enjoyed by all, meself included.
